I feel bad for scallops. It's not their fault they are so delicious.

I am the eye in the sea
Looking at thee
I can read your mind
My eyes are like jewels
Underneath pools
I can cheat you blind

I've known this since forever.  They can swim by opening and closing quickly too!  Next week's newsflash!

"Speiser demonstrated this a decade ago by putting scallops in little seats and playing movies of drifting food particles."

In other news, Scallops in Little Seats is the name of my new indie band.

Minsc did not realize the yummy scallops were full of such evil!

They get to see the knife scoop them from their shell and tossed back into the ocean.

Damn, that's a flashback I wasn't expecting today.  Well played sir.

Wow, this is really amazing. And layered guanine crystals are responsible for the photonic lensing...flabbergasted.

In a british chip shop, when you ask for a 'scallop', you get two slices of potato with cheese inbetween, battered and fried.   This always confused me as a kid.

I guess that is where we get the term "scalloped" potatoes, which is to say sliced potatoes in melted cheese sauce.

It makes a sort of sense. These fish shop "scallops" must look a bit like scallops in that they simulate bi-valves. But damn, I would be disappointed if I ordered scallops, expecting at worst fake scallops made of stamped out cylinders of ordinary white fish, and got cheesy potatoes instead.

Reminds me of the first time I had "Quebec" poutine. I was expecting "Acadian" poutine, altogether a higher class of dish, consisting of stew-filled dough, like inside-out dumplings cooked in stew.

Thank you for that weird cultural note. I will bear it in mind, in case I ever go to the UK.

Those hip hop guys sound a lot like the Lucas Brothers, whom I love. They are black twin brothers who do stand up and also a really great self-entitled self-titled cartoon, The Lucas Brothers. Cool.

Poutine? Hah, thought you meant the "Ontarian" version, but that's a different menu.

While on the subject, an orangy/pinkish tint in scallops meat indicate it was a female ready to reproduce, but doesn't affect the quality for better ir wirst, however does look good, especially served raw.
